Once you have tasted flight, you will forever walk the earth with your eyes turned skyward, for there you have been, and there you will always long to return.

At OpenText™, artificial intelligence (AI) has been in our DNA for decades. Much like aviation, once we started, we couldn’t see another way. OpenText has a history of AI innovations across all areas -– natural language processing, robotics and IoT, machine learning, process automation, generative AI, and more. Our destination is Artificial General Intelligence (AGI) – where AI software moves from automating calculations to making choices.

When machines make choices, the need for trusted data, risk management, governance, security, and values-based design become paramount. is our go-forward vision and strategy. Our mission is to empower teams with the AI Advantage to reimagine work. With secure information management, we believe advanced technologies can bring together human intelligence with artificial intelligence. This collaborative intelligence will enable companies to create a better future. When we apply AI to focus on speed, scale, and skills, we can elevate people to be more – more present leaders, more engaged colleagues, more creative innovators.

Smarter with OpenText  

What we’ve learned from decades of helping customers manage their large, complex data sets is that information management is a prerequisite of AI.

Information management + trusted data + AI = smarter organizations

Customers manage all types of data through the OpenText cloud – operational data that reflect millions of transactions, experiential data that reflect digital touchpoints and behaviors, and now learning data from generative AI models. This unforeseen layer of learning data  will come with different requirements, different use cases, and a whole new layer of data integration to fuel self-learning models. 

Introducing OpenText Aviator

OpenText Aviator is our family of AI products and services that span a full stack of offerings – from applications to foundational platforms to AI orchestration.  Customers have trusted us to help them manage their large private data sets for a long time – from B2B transactions to content repositories to application code and intellectual property.  Now, without having to move their data, customers can utilize OpenText Aviator to take advantage of AI.

OpenText Aviator for Technologists are the foundational AI platforms and AI engineering tools that customers can leverage to ingest, transform, and enrich their data to fuel AI.   Customers need to organize their data, build the data fabrics, and orchestrate the appropriate information syntax and flows that will enable large learning models (LLMs) to work. Once the data strategy is clear and information flows are executable, then experiences can go from clicks to conversations and work can go from days to minutes.

Our starting set of solutions include:

As our strategy unfolds, there will be places where we build and places where we partner. Foundationally, we are taking a poly-model approach, meaning we believe in helping our customers find the right model for the right job. The squadron of planes (i.e., LLM models) will continue to grow with time and become more specialized.  From PaLM2 to T5, we are trying and testing all types of open-source and industry models to find the best  way to  engineer our solutions.
